Neil Little (born December 18, 1971 in Medicine Hat, Alberta) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers organization nearly his entire professional career, helping backstop the Philadelphia Phantoms to two Calder Cup championships and playing in two career NHL games with the Flyers. He is currently an assistant coach/ goaltending development coach for the Philadelphia Phantoms as well as a global scout for the Philadelphia Flyers, concentrating his focus on goaltenders.

Playing careerEdit

Little has played for the Hershey Bears and Philadelphia Phantoms in the AHL, as well as playing two NHL games for the Philadelphia Flyers. He signed with the Espoo Blues in the Finnish SM-liiga for the 2005–06 season, playing until leaving the team because of a dispute with the Espoo coach, then finished the season in Geneva, Switzerland. He was the "flying goalie" in a brawl between the Phantoms and the Binghamton Senators: as several players from the two teams were fighting next to the Senators' net, Little skated across the rink and dived into the crowd.

Coaching careerEdit

Little was named goaltending/ Assistant coach for the Philadelphia Phantoms for the 2007–08 season

AwardsEdit

Little was inducted into the Philadelphia Phantoms Hall of Fame and the AHL Hall Of Fame in 2006.
